Canoeing across the country
Paddler Mike Ranta, 44, accompanied by his dog Spitzii, is canoeing his way across the country to honour the nation's veterans. He'll be stopping at Legions along the way. In 2014, he crossed the North American continent solo, by canoe, in seven months. This time, he wants to do it in six.
